PETITION URGING THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES TO DEMAND RELEASE OF ALL 28 SECRET PAGES ON THE SAUDI ROLE IN 9/11

To: All members of the Congress of the United States:

Whereas, the September 11, 2001, terror attacks constituted the worst attack on the American homeland in our history, killing almost 3,000 innocent people, traumatizing the nation, introducing millions to the evils of radical Islam, and defining America’s foreign policy for the coming generation;

Whereas, Saudi Arabia is known to have spent billions of dollars exporting its radical Wahhabist brand of Islam worldwide, including to the United States;

Whereas, a bill to release the top-secret 28 pages of the report of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001 was introduced last year by Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., and two other congressmen;

Whereas, Jones, after reading the redacted section, declared it contains clear evidence of Saudi government sponsorship of the 9/11 hijackers;

Whereas, the 9/11 Commission failed to carry out the final recommendation of the Joint Inquiry – headed by then-Sen. Bob Graham, D-Fla., and then-Rep. Porter Goss, R-Conn. – to further investigate the role of Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks;

Whereas, Graham, former chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and co-author of the key section of the 28 pages, has been calling for the release of the information since 2011;

Whereas, Graham says the FBI failed to disclose reports that high-ranking Saudi Arabian officials provided "substantial" financial aid and other help to the 19 hijackers;

Whereas, Graham believes the 28 pages were classified to protect the U.S. relationship with ally Saudi Arabia;

Whereas, the joint intelligence committee inquiry states in finding No. 15 that the committee "heard testimony from U.S. government personnel that Saudi officials had been uncooperative and often did not act on information implicating Saudi nationals";

Whereas, the staff director of the 9/11 Commission, Phil Zelikow, actively worked against thoroughly investigating Saudi Arabia's role in the 9/11 attacks, according to a book by New York Time’s national security correspondent Philip Shenon, “The Commission";

Whereas, more than a dozen relatives of 9/11 victims have argued in a letter to President Obama that it is "not acceptable" to "succumb to the demands of a foreign government" and "abandon principles of American justice while we pursue our diplomatic goals”;

Whereas, President Obama admitted in an interview with CBS News co-host Charlie Rose that he’s never read the 28-page chapter himself, despite making a record four trips to Saudi Arabia and bowing to the kingdom's monarchs;

Whereas, anything less than the release of the full 28 pages will be regarded by the public as evidence of a U.S. government cover-up of Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks:

SIGN THE PETITION

Therefore, we call on the Congress of the United States to pass a resolution urging the president to declassify the entire 28-page section on foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers produced by the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.
